When you think of cosmetic dentistry, the first thing that probably comes to mind is teeth whitening. As one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments available, teeth whitening is a cost-effective way to brighten and renew your smile. Many dental practices offer both in-house teeth whitening treatments and take-home teeth whitening treatments.
Professional teeth whitening typically uses a robust whitening gel placed over the outside surfaces of the teeth to remove stains and discolorations from the tooth enamel. This process can take upwards of 30 minutes to complete but differs per patient, depending on their needs.
Those who have received teeth whitening treatments often wish to lighten yellowing that can happen to teeth over time. Factors that can contribute to discolored teeth are:
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Natural aging
- Drinking strong beverages, such as coffee or tea
- Medical conditions
- Certain medications
- Lack of proper dental hygiene
Many patients who receive teeth whitening want to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smiles for special occasions or as a way to improve their physical appearance and gain confidence. Whatever the reason, teeth whitening is an easy and simple way to enhance your beautiful smile.
